dc.description.abstract Drawing on the interviews conducted with over 50 Pentecostals in various Pentecostal congregations, the article argues that Zambian Pentecostalism did not reject Kaunda???s humanism but its spiritual source of knowledge. It demonstrates that Zambian Pentecostals believe that all knowledge has spiritual source and life-giving knowledge comes from God who is the Ultimate source of all truth. In order to dethrone what was perceived as negative spiritual source of Kaunda???s humanism, Pentecostalism sought to declare Zambia as a Christian nation in order to anchor socio-political and economic epistemologies of the nation into God through Christ. en
